Harvard Yale Football Program 1926 – The Great Gatsby?

The Harvard-Yale Football program of 1926 captures the mood of its era better than any other college football program we have ever seen. The game was played shortly after F. Scott Fitzgerald published The Great Gatsby in 1925.

 

The program is chocked full of ads showing the latest fashions, particularly for women of the 20s.

 

 

What better captures the spirit of the Jazz Age than these fabulous pictures?

A Pierce Arrow ’36 series, anyone?

I’m headed out to Eastern Long Island now!

Oh yea, and the program also does some perfunctory coverage of the game itself, including the dashing captain P.W. Bunnell on the Yale Fence.
